The Oxford-Globe Forum meets twice a year, alternating between Shakespeare’s Globe and the University of Oxford. It brings together researchers and practitioners in medicine, theatre and academia to explore a designated theme.

The theme for December 2017 is Altered States. Papers are invited on (but not limited to) topics such as: consciousness and unconsciousness, hallucinations, possession, sleep and dreaming, melancholy and anxiety, madness, anger, passion and passions, trances, voices, echoes, the senses, obsession, contagion, grief and mourning.

Papers are informal and are limited to 12 - 15 minutes; the aim is to enable discussion among different interests and disciplines.

Registration is required and costs £15; this fee includes a sandwich lunch and coffee.
